Powers has been with Lincoln since she opened the first location in Uptown Dallas, September 2013.  Lincoln says, “chef Powers has that rustic sensibility while at the same time refined cooking that is a good fit for this concept.  He also understands the importance of providing only the best product possible and goes out of his way working with the farmers and purveyors on sourcing.”  Powers and executive chef Juliard Ishizuka, from the Uptown location, will work in tandem and support one another for both locations.  Lincoln continues, “Plano has been my home since moving to Texas.  Our daughter has grown up in the neighborhood and several of my loyal fans live in the area. I’m excited to bring this neighborhood restaurant to our community.  The focus is great food, excellent service in a warm and comfortable atmosphere.” 
The Plano dining room has a sleek rustic design appeal with dark and natural woods, black siding combination and burnt orange accents.  The main dining room seats 60, an open kitchen with chefs counter seats 4 (where a chef’s tasting menu will be available), the community table in the bar area seats up to 20, and a private dining wine cellar seats up to 12.  Patio and outdoor lounge seating will accommodate another 30 guests. 
A few additions have been made to the menu including lobster tacos and lobster mac n cheese, creative burgers (bison burger, forget the beef”burger” and land & sea burger), reasonably priced entrées such as the jumbo sea scallops and an all-natural dry aged wagyu strip from Local Yocal.  Look for adult milkshakes and a well-rounded wine list of even more offerings under $100.  A wine by the glass program will offer wines at the perfect temperature using a state of the art Enomatic wine keep.  The core menu will remain the same as Uptown and continue to offer daily/nightly blackboard features as well. 
Lincoln continues, “I have returned to my roots with the steak & burger bar, and very excited to build a concept that truly has a soul.  I also like that this restaurant appeals to the younger generation as well as the older.”  Lincoln appreciates the importance of keeping her fans happy through multiple decades, while at the same time appealing to a younger generation of diners.  She recognizes the value of evolving in this industry and accepts the challenge of delivering on the expectation of the ever-changing and educated diner in today’s world, while also staying true to the core of her brand. 
Born on a wildlife ranch in Seguin, Texas, Powers attended a branch of the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in Austin, Texas.  Powers worked in Austin for several years before accepting a sous chef position at The Mansion on Turtle Creek. After three years, he was transferred to Caneel Bay – A Rosewood Hotels property in St. John US Virgin Islands, as banquet chef/sous chef. Powers stayed in this position for two years until relocating back to Dallas where he accepted the executive chef position with La Reve Consultants for Trece Restaurant, in 2008. 
In 2011 Waldorf Astoria in Park Cities, Utah hired Powers as the executive sous chef.  In that same year, he was offered the executive chef position for Sorrel River Ranch in Moab, Utah where he implemented a “farm to table” program at the ranch utilizing 60% of all produce used in the restaurant from the on-site garden.
Powers relocated back to Dallas in 2012 and worked as executive chef for Magnolia Hotel Dallas before joining Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar, summer of 2013.
Co-founder of nationally acclaimed, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, Lincoln resigned in 2010 after an extremely successful era and the sale of the iconic brand.  Lincoln then embarked on a new journey to build her own brand by opening Dee Lincoln’s Tasting Room & Bubble Bar in the new Cowboys Stadium. Shortly thereafter, a second location was opened in Uptown Dallas.  Lincoln made the decision to go back to her roots and do what she does best…with a twist.  She opened Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar in Uptown Dallas in September 2013.
Lincoln has been awarded a number of local and national honors including: Savor Dallas Spirit Award, Women Who Soar Legacy Award, Wine Enthusiast Magazine nominated Restaurateur of the Year, Texas Restaurant Association’s Greater Dallas Restaurant Association awarded Restaurant of the Year for the State of Texas, Restaurants & Institutions Magazine coveted Ivy Award voted upon by her peers across the country, Northwood University Distinguished Women, Dallas Business Journal Women in Business Award and more.
